lovely capture right place right time! ...I may have been tempted to have tried this in Black and White and adjusted the contrast to give it a more gritty period feel.. steam rallies and preservation societies seem to be a photographers dream for classic looking images..must go to one in the next year...its been a long time since I treated myself..well done and thanks for sharing

Nice shot. I do like that GWR heavy goods engine. It sounds lovely.
Best wishes,

Andrew

I knew Andrew would like this, he's steeped in everything Great Western. Its a fine shot of the engine but for me the crew are more interesting, particular the guy in the fireman's seat and his wonderful beard.
Yopu don't say where it is, West Somerset Railway perhaps, or is it the Severn Valley.

Lovely capture of man and his machine, the fellow sat this side is probably only 25 or so, a beard like that can age a chap by 30 or more years.

Very fine photograph.
